Moon Games

Astrologically-obsessed photographer Laurent Lavender and his graphic-artist companion Sabine Sannier have taken the most amazing photographs of silhouettes and the moon; playful, inventive photos taken on the beach in Bretagne.  In 2010, they self-published what looks like a gorgeous book called Quartier libre. The photos would have made a lovely book by themselves, but instead, the couple sent a selection of the photos to several authors of varying disciplines - poets, bloggers, photographers, astronomers, journalists, and scientists.  These contributors chose a photo and sent back some to accompany it, and Sabine pulled it all together in a truly unique book.  I have seen their photos floating around the web a few times and thought they were a cool idea, but tonight when I looked at them they felt kind of magical.  So in case you happen to be in the same mystical mood as I, here are a few to admire.

You can see all of Laurent Lavender's beautiful photos here.  Found via Digital Photography School.

    Those are amazing.  You really do find the coolest things.  By the way, I'm not sure why but some of the photos from this post and other posts weren't loading (not sure if it is my computer or your posts).  Thanks for sharing the moon images - I'm going to send them to the kids.  They will love them.

  4. Thank you Grace - that is the best compliment!  That is odd regarding the images they show up on my computer but I know that when I use photos from other URLs, sometimes they get removed or moved... To see them all you should definitely follow the link and check out his photo site, he has so many amazing images of the moon.  Thanks again Grace!
